Character Cake Pans

Character cake pans are the perfect set up for a great party. Kids absolutely love to have their favorite cartoon character as their birthday cake, and some never grow out of that!

It used to be that you could find character cake pans anywhere. They used to carry them at the grocery store, the drug store, or anywhere that sold a wide range of products. Unfortunately, that's not the case anymore. In order to find a specific cake pan, you have to turn to the internet. The good thing about that is there are thousands of different pans to choose from and they cost much less than if you found them locally in your town.

Remember to choose a character cake pan that fits your skill level. It's really easy to get over your head when decorating a cake. If you're just getting started I recommend baking some practice cakes so you can get a feel for what it's like to use an icing bag.

I'll show you some of the most popular character cake pans around. You can purchase them safely and securely by following the link to at the bottom of each description. If you don't see what you're looking for, follow the link to and browse around. They have every character cake pan you can imagine!

Scooby Doo Cake Pan

Who doesn't love Scooby Doo?  I, for one, have yet to find anyone that doesn't!

The really cool thing about Scooby is that it's timeless.  He was just as popular when we were kids as he is know, and it will stay that way.  This means that you can use this cake over and over, while some of the other cake pans are only going to be used once or twice.

This cake is pretty easy to decorate.  The only tricky part is icing the burger that he's eating.  It's not technically difficult, but you will have to make many more batches of colored icing than you do for a normal cake. 

Wilton makes this character cake pan, so you know that you get awesome quality at a great price.  This pan qualifies for free shipping from Amazon if your order is over $25.

Elmo Cake Pan

This Elmo character cake pan is perfect for the little ones in your life.  Elmo falls into the timeless category like Scooby Doo does, so you'll get tons of use out of this cake pan.

The best thing about this cake is that it only takes an hour or so to decorate it.  It's only three colors so when you need to whip up a cake in a pinch you can get this one done in no time.

Since it's so easy this is a great first time cake for beginning decorators.  If you want to get a professional look on the eyes and mouth by smoothing it out (see picture), wet your finger, shake off the excess water, and smooth out the icing.  This works best when you get these parts done first.

Spongebob Squarepants Cake Pan

Spongebob is one of the most loved cartoon characters in the country.  The best thing is that it's not just kids that love the show, grown ups are just as infatuated with him!

No one will ever grow out of a fun birthday cake so you can use this pan for anyone's birthday (as long as they have a sense of humor!).  

I'd call this an intermediate difficulty character cake pan.  If you've decorated a few cakes and are ready to spread your wings a little bit, this is the perfect cake to do that with.  There's just enough detail and outline to give the beginner a good challenge and keep the pro interested.

As with all Wilton character cake pans you get great quality at a good price.
